Deema agony auntI know this life, it ain't easy kid, and thats for me a very mature and independent woman, but for your age - well its very hard. My husbnand also works sooooo many hours, but I have my life, I get on and live it and see him when I see him. Sometimes its ok and sometimes when there are problems its veeeeery hard, but thats how our relationship seems to work best. When we spend a great deal of time together we fight, so probably best this way. We love each other very deeply, and really care for each other or we wouldn't go on. BUT my husband wants me to introduce my daughters to his friends in the same line of work, and theres no way I would do that because I think the life is too hard for a young girl. When you're young you want to be with your boyfriend, go out have fun, be around each other, not alone waiting al the time. Though the answer is DON'T WAIT - get out there and do whatever it is you want to do then whether he's there or not you've got a good life, and who knows, it might get so good you don't need him any more. We can't expect men to provide all the happiness and enjoyment in our lives, we have to do that oursleves, but if you want a boyfriend whos there for you, sounds like you need to move on. Good luck hun.

At 18 does he really need to work all those hours? If not then tell him he needs to cut down or you will leave him.

If he does need to work that much or he just chooses to then it's up to you. You can either accept the situation and stay with him and put up with it, or you can leave and find someone else.

There are no other options really. Sorry.

Good Luck!! xx
